Introduction / History

The Kamboj of Haryana speak Haryanvi and Hindi. They read and write in Devanagari. They speak Odia.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Many work on the land, in business, for the government and for others. They are not vegetarians and wheat is their staple food.

They are reasonably well educated and use modern medicines.

The Kambo have birth and marriage rituals and they cremate their dead like most Hindu communities.

They allow divorce within the first two years of marriage. The divorced and bereaved can marry again depending on their age. On the death of the father, Kambo sons inherit the property with the oldest son taking charge of the home. They have a caste council to look after their interests.


What Are Their Beliefs?


What Are Their Needs?

Pray the Kambo would see they can enjoy abundant life if they put their trust in Jesus Christ.

Pray for the Lord to intervene in their families, calling people to his side and blessing them in every way.

Pray for loving workers to go to them until there are Kambo disciples who make other disciples.

Pray for an abundant crop this year as a testimony of God's power and love for the Kambo people.

Pray for a church planting movement to thrive in their communities.


Prayer Points

Like people everywhere, the Kambo people need to allow the loving Savior to direct their lives. They need his forgiveness for sin.
